The totality of the film got inside my head and never left.

When the doll begins not just talking - with the excellent, near-iconic voice of Brad Dourif in his mouth - but sneering, snarling and stabbing, it's an excellent reveal.

In short, it is a title... whose plot idea was worthy of greater efforts. [Full review in Spanish]

Chucky's back and Scream brought the mass-murdering doll back to the small screen with their Collector's Edition of CHILD'S PLAY, stuffed with all the extra features you would kill for.

The Child's Play series kicks off with this alternatingly silly and frightening installment...

Making a good horror-thriller, or even a good horror-comedy, is not child's play, as this schizoid film all too unfortunately proves.

With equal portions of frolic and fear, Child's Play is a hilarious hair-raiser that is highly recommended for horror fans.

It's no surprise that this strange, unique, demented picture spawned a whole series of follow-ups; it's just a shame their increasing gaucheness mostly deters people - including myself - from going back to where it all began.

Never really amounts to a great horror movie.

The things that redeem the film, at least slightly, are Dourif's nasty, insinuating vocal performance and Kevin Yagher's design of the Chucky doll itself.

It's nothing wildly original, but it is pacey and entertaining when it gets going.

It does, however, have some decent scares, a lot of good lines and a memorable villain.

Is anyone ever going to make a really good movie about toys coming to life to kill people?

Fun withers in stretching the thin material to feature length.
October 15, 2008
With humor taking a backseat to good, old-fashioned suspense, Child's Play is an impressive horror highlight of the late-'80s film scene.

'Child's Play' is one of the scariest movies ever.
September 18, 2008
Insidiously effective.

While the sequels may have gotten progressively more campy, I'm pleased to note that the original Child's Play holds up just as well as I'd hoped. (And the new DVD rocks.)
September 8, 2008
I'm sure Child's Play was far from the only film of its era sold as one of the great scareshows of all time.
September 5, 2008
Even after twenty years, Child's Play shows no ring rust. The little flick plays just as well now as it did in its heyday.
